What's the proper steps to use the Visual Studio Online for source control?

I looked but it seems vague exactly how to use this.  So, do I have to
1.create a project in VS Online account
2. Create a project locally on my pC.
3.  Somehow link my local PC project to VS online?

If not correct the above steps then how to do it?  
Thank you.

Try this.

Whether your software project is large, small, or brand new, in most cases you'll be better off if you use version control as early as possible. Here, we'll show you how to get started with Git, a distributed system. If you want to work in a centralized system, you can instead use TFVC with Visual Studio Online.
